Sunday Safari

An Indigo Bunting came to the backyard this morning.

A Cecropia Moth was on the trunk of our neighbor's tree.

The Rose-breasted Grosbeaks come often to the feeders.

We planted five fig trees.
Fruit is already setting.

I spent telephone time with my children.
I opened cards and gifts.
I miss them.

We talked about fossils and rocks.
We talked about coming for a visit.
We talked.
Soon we will share hugs and fossils.

Happy Mother's Day.
Happy 5 years of Q's Corner.
Happy Sunday Safari.

It is a busy day.

Your Indigo Bunting is such a beautiful, vivid colour Sherry.

I love the moth too, it looks so big!

How wonderful to have your own Figs, it must be lovely to be able to eat them as fresh as that.

Many congratulations on your 5 years :)

Dear Sherry,

Congrats on five years, so many fall by the wayside, you have done so well keeping your blog going.

I saw fig trees on Sunday at the garden centre....I thought of you.
They will work well in your garden I am sure. Picking your own figs will be such fun.

Lovely to see the moth, isn't it beautiful.

Glad you spent time talking to your children. It will be lovely for you to have them visit. I know you miss them. It must be difficult at times.

Enjoy the garden.......happy days.

Q - What kind of fig trees? Excuse my ignorance, but they are hardy in KC? I will watch your blog for updates!
Miss the indigo buntings. Lived in the St. Louis area (where we had LOTS) until marriage brought me to central Kansas 20 years ago (where we have occasional sitings).
